Am I under obligation to make a train engineer accident claim?
No, our advisors will never put you under any pressure to proceed with a train engineer accident claim. All they will do is determine whether your claim is likely to be successful. After that, the decision is yours.
How will they know if my claim will be successful?
There can be no guarantee, but Accident Advice Helpline have been successfully completing personal injury claims for many years. If we can prove that your accident was caused by the negligence of a third party and resulted in an injury that led to financial loss, we have a good chance of success.
All of our expert lawyers work exclusively on a no win, no fee* basis so you will not be burdened with further upfront costs.
What will increase my chances of success?
By using the services of the experienced professionals at Accident Advice Helpline you have already increased your chance of a successful train engineer accident claim! You can help us by making a detailed record of your accident as soon afterwards as possible and by getting the names and contact details of witnesses we can contact. Try to get photographs of the hazard that caused your injury and of the injury itself.
How will the compensation be calculated?
Compensation will reflect the seriousness of your injury and the amount it has cost you. These costs can include anything relating to your injury – prescription charges, transport to medical appointments and modifications needed to your home. Often the biggest cost is loss of income when you are unable to work. Keep records and receipts of all these costs so that they can be used to calculate your compensation.
Is there an alternative to suing my employer?
We understand that it may seem awkward to sue your employer even when they are negligent, but it is important to remember that your employer will not be paying the compensation. This will be paid by your employer’s liability insurance – something they are legally required to have for this very purpose.
When do I start my claim?
Ideally you will start your train engineer accident claim soon after the accident. However, this may not always be possible. If your injuries are severe you may have needed to focus on your physical and psychological recovery to start with. As long as you start the claim within three years of your accident you are entitled to make a compensation claim.
